The length of his absence and the exact nature of his injury is not yet known. The newspaper speculates that it might be an ankle injury, as HC Thurgau expects the goaltender to be out for eight to twelve weeks.
That would thus mean that Luis Janett will definitely miss the season opener. According to head coach Markus Åkerblom, they will thus have to look for another solution. Whether they will find a solution together with their partner team HC Davos or find someone on the market remains to be seen.
